Always willing to share my fan collecting experience I jump at this seldom asked request out of the blue.  (He just remembered me mentioning one time it was a long time hobby of mine.) 
He says, "Jason says your hording a couple of hundred fans in your barn and I need one that my wife is looking for."

Come to find out He is looking for one that is in a bedroom/bathroom scene of "Blade Runner".  He showed me a pic of an overlapping three bladed, Ringed cage with a diminishing swirl toward the center.

I could not believe he showed me something I could not identify... Hell had officially froze over.

When I was on here 20 years ago we used to talk about fans in the movies we saw.  Has this one ever been hashed over to anyone knowledge?

I think it would be too cool to actually come up with one for him to be honest, but I seen a billion fans that one stumped me.  I am trying to get me to send me the pic on his phone, it would make it easier for sure.

If he’s looking for a Frost, I have one that I’d sell, but if I recall, they’re 220

I think you'd have to look at a new fan every minute for 1900 years to see a billion fans...

I anticipated that as I was pretty certain it didn't appear to be American manufactured.  I dont feel so bad now.  I will ask him Lane, it might be a go.  I think she was more interested in a look than function, they are excellent people, but not fan collectors... I will try to get ahold of him this afternoon and find out the whole score.  I did not hold any hopes for even coming close.  I told him it would be a "Christmas miracle" if one turns up, heh, heh.
